We took two of our Grandchildren (aged 9 and 3) to Nymans on Christmas Eve. As you would expect the Gardens are not at their best at this time of year. However we opted for the Christmas Trail - find a 100 different tags scattered all around the garden - in all sorts of locations. We "only" found 63 before... More

This is a medium-sized garden which you can easily visit in a morning or afternoon, perhaps leaving time to visit another National Trust property during the same day. (Sheffield Park and Wakehurst Place are also within an hour's drive). There is an add-on longer woodland walk that you can also do, but the main garden is formally laid-out and the... More

Nymans was built in the 1920s, which was surprising considering the style of the house. Built by a Jewish family to imitate grand houses at least 100 years older, it is a striking series of buildings. The grounds are beautiful with a touch of eeriness due to part of the house being in ruins. The gardens and grounds are absolutely... More

Nymans house, gardens and woodland are a great place to visit, and the cafeteria also serves very good food. The house is maintained to an excellent standard with plenty of stewards who can answer questions, although we didn't visit on this occasion. The plant centre has lovely plants and knowledgeable staff, and the shop has some great gift ideas. At... More

Nymans herbacious borders in summer are probably the best I have ever seen. Like any garden, visitor numbers are much less in the winter, but 3+ hours can easily be spent strolling around.The woodland areas outside the garden are also worth visiting, but do wear waterproof boots or wellies as it can be wet underfoot in places. The cafe is... More

We visited Nymans on a sunny November day. It was lovely, so I can only imagine how nice it is in the late Spring and summer. The gardens aren't huge, but plenty big enough for a lovely stroll. The house was closed in November, but it was lovely to see from the outside and also the ruined parts. There looked... More

We popped in here on the way home from elsewhere, but realised we hadn't allowed enough time. Even in October the grounds were colourful and tempted us to explore, as a good garden should. We had a quick look in the house, but it was closing at 3pm, before the grounds, so we couldn't linger. That does seem very early.... More
